It's the Hampshire-based winery's secondary iteration of its Still by Hattingley range 

This Pinot Noir from the 2016 vintage has been created by head winemaker Emma Rice. It follows the release of a 2019 Rosé earlier this year.

The wine is made from handpicked Pinot Noir (89%) and Pinot Noir Précoce (11%) grapes. The must was fermented on the skins for two weeks, then transferred to French oak barrels for three years of maturation. The Pinot Noir was eventually bottled in March 2020.

The producer describes it as being full-bodied, and having ‘rich dark berry fruit with notes of smoke, an elegant structure and silky finish’.

Available from 31 July exclusively through Hattingley Valley, hattigleyvalley.com
